Hyper-V Backup to .vhd

I am running MS Server 08 R2 on a physical machine.

I am looking for a preferred method to back up the entire server (domain controller) to a .vhd file that I restore to a better server I have that is running Hyper-V. Thus moving the physical server to a VM .

Thanks

Adding VM as ADC in existing domain and then demotion of existing DC is the safest way to virtualize domain controller in your scenario.
